Does anyone know if charley horses can be a side effect of prednisone? I've been getting really bad ones lately in my calves and currently have had one for over 24 hrs and it doesn't want to go away. I'm thinking there could be many reasons why I'm getting them really bad right now (pregnancy, prednisone, potassium imbalance) and being pregnant really makes it hard to pin point anything to things. :(
